Sutton Seeds Birthday Bean

Description

Sutton Seeds Birthday Bean


World famous seed company Sutton Seeds are celebrating their 200th birthday in 2006. At a time when sales of vegetable seeds are overtaking flower seeds, they have chosen a Runner Bean to lead the celebrations. Naturally, it's called 'Celebration' and a packet of 25 seeds costs £2.89.

It has pretty salmon-pink flowers that will appeal to all those gardeners who like their vegetables to be as ornamental as they are tasty so it is ideal for growing as part of the mixed flower border or in a large container on the patio. It is an early cropping stringless bean. Sow from April to crop from mid-July.

On a Healthy Eating note: it is high in Vitamin C that helps the body absorb iron.
